    Cool, do you drive a black AGP-SS? I've seen one in Ashford and Maidstone a lot

    I tested this car at Fiat Direct back when buying my AGP SS, plumped for one with identical spec except with white wheels and Sabelts and without the skydome. Enjoy  :thumb:

    Always good to know, it looks like it's been sitting around for the best part of a year..  Will be good to properly run it in! :)

    What did you think of it?  I've only driven two (one of them being the red one) so didn't have much to compare it to.

    Felt much the same as mine to drive which shows a little consistency of Abarth's part.

    This was April/May last year and I came across it again on Autotrader a few weeks ago and its price had been reduced a fair bit so probably no bad thing it's been sitting there a while.

    A little consistency is always a good thing you know! ;)

    I ended up getting the car for £12,500 - which considering the mileage, SS kit and other options that it had I thought was bloody good value :)
